We R Animals

I don't even know how to introduce this, but you've got to check it out! There's an upcoming Swedish film in development called We R Animals that is an R-rated English language animated puppet movie inspired by Peter Jackson's Meet The Feebles and creatures in Gremlins/Labyrinth. A batch of crazy photos recently hit on Twitch (via SlashFilm) and it has kind of a Gremlins meets deranged Muppets vibe to it that kicks ass. Most characters in the movie will be played by hand puppets with animatronic faces. The photos come from a test shoot that director Thobias Hoffmen did to get financing for this, with production starting in 2011.

Hoffmen describes the film in a quote found by SlashFilm: "'A live-action version of a cartoon world.' A bit like an adaptation of a graphic novel. It is our world, yet not. As a living painting by CM Coolidge, which is drawing everything to a head." The insanely wacky plot involves the female rabbit Snow White breaking out of a pet store only to end up becoming a prostitute under the control of a shady and devious pimp cat named Flash and his dog friends. It's a comic adventure, filled with drug using cats, horny dogs, cat-ninja assassins, vampire bats, cruelty and magic. So insane, but it looks awesome, and I want to see it. Gotta love originality!

    Sounds a lot like the BBC 6 part animation "I am not an animal" voiced by Steve Coogan and Simon Pegg among others. It was a cracking series and if you like the sound of this, you should check it out.

    Stupid, but hey, if Team America can get made, why not something like this? Come to think of it, why haven't we seen something like this sooner?
  • Xerxex
    jjboldt are you implying that Team America was bad?

    Sweet, I miss stuff like this... Gremlins, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, hell even Fraggle rock. Granted I was a kid but this could offer flashbacks of childlhood appeal with some adult fun. :)
